Louise Lecavalier (CA)


Dancer and choreographer, laureate of many prestigious awards. Worked with Édouard Lock and La La La Human Steps from 1981 to 1999, a period of exceptional intensity punctuated by works that have since become mythical along with scintillating collaborations (David Bowie, Frank Zappa etc.). Her extreme dance, filled with a fiery energy, caught the imagination of generations. Since founding her own company, Fou glorieux, in 2006, her movement research has been emblematic of her whole career, emphasizing the surpassing of limits and risk-taking, a search for the absolute in which she seeks to bring out the “more-than-human in the human.” In 2012, she created So Blue (presented also at TANEC PRAHA festival), her first full-length choreography, followed by Battleground in 2016. Both works have toured extensively, nationally and internationally. Her solo Stations (2020) is her last work.
